Madonna not sued in Holland

Amsterdam prosecutors said Monday they had decided not to press charges against US singer Madonna for blasphemy in relation to a concert she gave in the Dutch capital in September.
The youth wing of the orthodox Christian SGP had applied for the singer to be charged.
A scene in her act in which Madonna wears a crown of thorns and is raised on a cross during the song Live to Tell caused offence across Europe during a tour last year.
Prosecutors said, however, that the scene reflected Madonna’s “disappointment and frustration over certain events in the world” and did not qualify as a punishable act.
Madonna has always maintained that the song is a call for people to show greater humanity to each other.
